How to Treat Back Pain in PKDBack Pain is a commonly seen in PKD (polycystic kidney disease) and it makes patients very uncomfortable. Then, is there any good methods to control it? Fortunately, acupuncture is widely used and has achieved a great success.

Before knowing how does it treat this pain in this kidney disease, I’d like to share something about back pain in this disease.

The causes of back pain in PKD.

1. Kidney infection -- As renal cyst can grow and affect kidney tissues, some parts of kidney are injured and kidney infection in caused. Once it occurs, it can cause pain in whole abdominal cavity, including back pain.

2. Kidney stone -- Due to a high accumulation of uric acid, patients are prone to suffering from kidney stone. It can cause much pain when the stone comes through urinary tract.

3. Kidney cysts -- The cysts will grow and increase in kidney, and they will damage the normal structure of kidney, leading to back pain.

From the above, we can know that kidney damage is the fundamental cause of lower back pain. If patients with PKD have the symptom of back pain, they should treat and alleviate kidney damage.

Then, how does acupuncture do it?

Acupuncture is a magic medical treatment which is most commonly used for pain relief. It is a stimulation of specific acupoints along with skin of the body involving penetration of thin and long needle. These points connect to pathways called Meridians, which conduct energy, or Qi. Chinese practitioners believe that it works by improving the flow of Qi throughout the body. It can stimulate Shenshu acupoint, which can shrink renal cyst, promote blood circulation, decrease the red or white blood cells in urine as well as lowering high blood pressure. And when the damaged kidney tissues get more blood circulation, it will improve its self-cure ability, thus improving kidney function. Furthermore, it has many benefits for patients. First, therapeutic effect is more quickly and dramatically. Second, operation method is simple and convenience. Third, it has no side effects on patients.

With acupuncture treatment, back pain can get very effective results. Moreover, blood circulation can be dilated and inflammation can be prevented. If you want to know whether this therapy is suitable for you, you can talk with our kidney experts online directly or email us to
